C4 Outside St Andrew's Societies, convivial meetings among ^cotsarenot '•: 

rare. At one of these, in the Col mies, a Paisley gentleman happened J ' 

J* to be raised to the chair when one of '■ us" dropped in. The company § 

Q was mixed, but the following story created much amusement. Tn . 

^ appreciate it in the printed page, the reader mu-t imagine himself at a :,_: 

2 harmonious meeting where creature comforts a re unstinted. ■- 

t- A stranger who visited Scotland was struck with the number of poets in M 

O Paisley. He was at a convivial meeting in the old town on one occasion, and ~ " 

^y was burning to express his admiration. He craved permission to propose a ~Z 

toast, which was prompdy ana cheerfully granted. The stranger was polite, "-> 

a observant, sympathetic, learned, eloquent, and he made a brilliant speech, ~ 

r™ which was in unison with the mind ofthe meeting. He was too much of the • — 

5 g ntleman to indulge in fulsome flattery, and every one was convinced that ^_ 

q he was revealing the thoughts of his inmo-t soul when he said that not only 3 

qj had Paisley produced more poets to the square inch than any place fin earth, £„, 

but the very children in their cradles cried in metre The speech was a great 

n_, success, but when the hero of the moment confidently asked the company to rL 

O assume the perpendicular, and join him in drinking, with Highland honou s — 

(the stranger had been observant, and wished to bestow the highest honours .2 

gp he knew of on his toast), to " The Poets of Paisley !" (?) The effect astonished -£ 

ca the enamoured vis'to-. Not a mother's son of themmoved a hair ! Why? " 

£s That's exactly what nonplissed the bewildered stranger. He couldn't under- ID 

stand it. ¥ou might think the auditors did not understand the adventurer's _^ 

jg En hsh . (A laugh.) What a Paisley man can't understand is not worth - 

— troubling about, and the admirable speech just delivered was not only under- H 

,~ stood and thoroughly appreciated, but was indelibly impressed on the mem- .40 

u ories of all who were privileged to hear it. Perhaps the proposer was not /] 

q^ sufficiently appreciative? Not a flaw : no one thought he had s:dd too much, its 

j/2 or come short in any particular. A cynic might insinuate that the company 

had been already drinking not wisely but too well, and however willing they 5 

might be to rise, they couldn't put a foot below them (?) Roars of laughter.) o 
That wasn't the reason, either. It's a libel on the keen-sighted ora'or to' 
hint such a thing : besides, who ever heard of a Paisley mm who was not as. 
nimble on his pins as he is clear in the head. (" Hear, hear," and applause.) 
Cyni-sare hard to convi ice, and lest any one might have a ling -ring sus- 
picion that the whisky was g"od, I can only dienel it by saying that a dance 
was to follow, which was beUer. (Laughter and applause.) The company 





as as highly respectable as the one I am now addressing, and the proposer 
of the appreciated toast was as much mystified, as you are why It was not duly 

honoured. The fact was; he had spoken the truth so eloquently that he had ■ 

convinced evei y one present that he whs a born poet, and each was too modest [5 
to rise and drink to his own health. (Roars of laughter and applause.) 

The writer visited many temples in his peregrinations in foreign lands, g 

and when r jturning thanks for a welcome to a banqueting hall of a i^ 

^ mystic fraternity, expressed his belief that he was the only Scot pres- "*■* 

O ent. The effect was magical. The " mim" meeting was instantly vocal -g 

so with the Doric, and his subsequent introduction to the members of that d 

jS foreign lodge, drew from him the declaration that he feared they would fri 
" prnve themielves more Scotch than he was. In another, and moer 

M foreign society, their music was set to the tunes of " Scots wha hae " ,2' 

~o and "Auld Lang Syne." Further from civilization, we heard coloured « 
jq people singing in their native tongue to the Gaelic tune known among 

< lowlanders as the " Nut-Brown Maid." C 

hJ Kvery one abroad is not prosperous, or a star at a social gathering. ° 

£ Some, in silence and obscurity, can find comfort (as many do at home) in ^

02 " Much better to have me," quoth Povertie, _ 

.. "Than either Sin or Shame." £3 

£p The Scots are welcome colonists because of their intention to make •£ 

Q the new land they strike their home rather than return to the land of "££ 

q their nativity after making their pile ; many return, after long years, for o 

rn a trip, and weary to come back to the land of their adoption ; but very S 

many — the big majority — rear families and form connections which bind *2 

O them to the new land beyond the seas, and while many (perhaps every >P' 

., one) of these may be anxious to visit their native land, they can only do " 

60 so in thought, and sip solace from the song : — ""^ 

p There's a hope for every woe There's a track upon the deep, E 

And a balm for every pain, And a path upon the sea, -^

It is not only our soldier lads who. at duty's call, go forth to meet s-i 

death in a foreign land, and have songs sung in memory of their brave j* 
(lends. Voluntary emigrants go, and lay their minds to have to cheat 
Scotland of their banes. They become possessed of estates, to which 
they give Scottish names. A Scot is not afraid to die, at home or abroad 
— not even to write his own requiem. The following is by Robert Louis

WE have managed to produce another issue of our 
Town and County Directory for Buteshire 

The early numbers contained the Officials and House- 
holders or Buteshire only. The Anniversaries and Traders 
were absorbed from the West Coast Almanac, issued at 
the New Year, and embracing districts outside Buteshire 
— the phenominal success of which in Mid Argyll, led to 
the establishment of the printing office in Lochgilphead. 

Rothesay is the most attractive and best known. We 
would like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among 
the other districts in the county. They have each and all 
something to be proud of. These cannot be properly 
appreciated until better known. In the present issue we 
continue the four distinct parts : viz.. (1) Anniversaries, 
(2) Officials, (3) Householders and (4) Traders. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; besides this, we send copies to 
the passenger steamers communicating with the islands of 
Buteshire, and these are hung up in their cabins. 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. For years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours — which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this mumber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries to be named by customers giving orders 
to the value of £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
ireading matter, we will, on receipt of orders early, keep 
permanent this decided advantage. 

We again give list of Householders but do not aspire 
to compete with the official Voters' Roll— for which the 
public are assessed, and can be got in 'whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially thos- 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants. — Largs and Millport News

vestment to spend 3s in the Bute Directory, now being circulated by Messis Higgie & 
Co., Rothesay. The compiler, Mr George Higgie, who is over 80 years of age, was 
one* of the first of the pioneeers of printing in Lochgilphead — about 40 years a<io. ' 
* the first. G.H. 

The Oban Times . . " This able annual has, in its latest number, all the fea- 
tures which have made it of use and importance to those connected in any way with 
the County of Bute. There is a special feature which should appeal to those inter- 
ested in the Island County, and that is, attached to each day of the year are events 
or anniversaries definitely belonging to the shire."

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News" makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere.

The Helensburgh and Ga/reloch Times says this useful hand-book is brimful of 
information regarding the County of Bute. The public officials, lists of householders 
and business people in this popular health resort will be most serviceable Notwith- 
standing the greatly increased cost of production, the price of two shillings has 
been maintained.

-L — Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little

marnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) 6 
139,658 acres, of which 53,5 LO are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,80s 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
tinder all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land.

Parish of North Bute. 

r I^HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*• village, is two and a-lialf miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females- total, 2730. The 1931 census, taken in April, showed the 
population of tha Island outside o Rothesay to be 2,779

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
-each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with J to the 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff" 
rom pre-war issues, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
-continuing of everythng as full as possible.

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of a 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed, 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so^ 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, 0. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint* 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

THOUSANDS of people who ordinarily spend part of the 
Winter abroad are seeking Winter quarters in the South 
Coast of Britain. But why not in Scotland asks Professor 
James Harris, an Edinburgh man, who knows the Scottish West- 
ern seaboard intimately. 

SCOTLAND has die chance of a lifetime. As a Scot I want t > see her take ad- 
vantage of it. Thousands of people in the British Isles are on the outlook for a 
Winter Resort, not on the Continent, where up to now they have spent the Winter. 

I have been amazed at the ideas held by many Englishmen regarding Scotland. 
They think of it as being on the fringe of the Arctic Circle, abounding in snow and 
.swept by the icy blasts from north and easti 

Even the people who claim to know Scotland well look questioningly at anyone 
who has the temerity to suggest that there are places on the Western seaboard where 
the climate is as mild as at such accepted Winter Resorts as Torquay. Bournemouth and 
Falmouth. The truth is that Scotland has a Winter climate which many people seem 
to know nothing about. 

Look at the map. It tells you that Edinburgh, on the East Coast of Scotland 
stands on the same degree of longitude as Liverpool. It tells you also that places 
like Rothesay. Helensburgh, Oban and the Gareloch are further West than the 
famous Torquay. 

Xow the comparative warmth which this country enjoys is not a question of 
latitude at all. Our warmth comes from the West — in other words from the Atlantic 
Gulf Stream. Fr mi this Scotland benefits to an even greater extent than England. 

I have before me figures which destro\ r completely the value of the cry, *' South 
for warmth in Winter." 

There is no difference of any consequence in the mean temperatures for the year of 
Rothesayand Torquay. Alexander Buehan gives the figure for Torquay as— 49.5 
degrees. The corresponding figure supplied by the Air Ministry for llothesay — in all 
probability not the warmest spot on the West Coast of Scotland — is -17.7 degrees, 

Less than two degrees in it! Yet thousands of people flock annually to Torquay 
for warmth in Winter, and Rothesay. Helensburgh, Oban, the Kvles of Bute and kin- 
dred places in Scotland are neglected. 

A big percentage of those going south in the Winter are invalids. They want 
mild climate. They can find it on the West Coast of Scotland. They want a place 
sheltered from the biting winds from the North and East. The places I have mni- 
tioned are eminently suitable. , . . The Sunday I'ost, Glasgow, 8/11/31.

24 years ago, a deputation from the third Esperanta Kongreso Internacia visited three 
places in Skotland, viz., Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay, and while sailing out of 
Sweet Rothesay Bay on a pleasant, cruise round the Isle of Bute, they were so charmed 
that they enjoynd singing Auld Lahgsyne in the Skots Doric —Esperanto letters being 
introduced. When the Bible in Esperanto, was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral 
Edinburgh in 192G, there was another pleasure excursion to the West of Scotland, 
but a large steamer had to be specially chartered for this occasion. Sroj. Higgie & 
Kio., had a verda standardo flying at Rothesay in honour of the visitors.

A.<leertb32in?)its r-ceiued early are placed next reading 'matter : — 
For the special benefit of Keshieuters ami Visitors, copies of the Directory are 
sent to the Buteshire Post OHices on payment of postage. 
We will continue our complimentary circulation among the Principal Public Libraries- 
throughout the British Isles. 
We make a loi.g and diligent search for alterations in present public institutions- 
throughout Buteshire, and shall be glad to have notification of same, and also list of 
•fnce-bearers of any new society. We wish no interest to be overlooked in our little but 
both popular and select county. This reference year-book is the only one for our 
shire: it is found not only throughout hut beyond it, and we wish to make our compila- 
tion as correct as possible. To make for efficiency, ple:ise send all commications earl// 
Prospectuses, of course, are free: after their issue and before the Directory is 
printed the Public may be called upon by a representative from this office, but then, 
it will be too late to choose positions for Advertisements or make large additions. Now 
is the time to give orders and prevent disappointment. Alterations can be made later. 
All the type is kept standing, and the forms are delivered to t lie machine room at 
one time, promptly printed and the sheets smartly delivered to waiting bookbinders. 

Those who only desire a copy of the Directory should not fail to send in an order 
before we go to press ; otherwise they will forfeit the concession and perhaps fail ti> 
get a copy at all. 

*\Ve warn tlie Public against being beguiled by strange canvassers who pretend 

to be associated tvitli us. 
All communications sent to 22 Bridge Street, will have careful attention

Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful" 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used fi r 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
■ — notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despost 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightfuhiess loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good- will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrihes, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Business— Practical Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business .Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a- 
practical Printer. 

are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners. 

Esperantohind is as wide, and communication as easy, as if served by wireless.

Peace, honor and §ood 

More than Christians believe that the Whole Human Family 
will yet live together as Brethren. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity 
but our forefathers got separated and estranged. The confusion of tongues 
did not cause them to be irreligious, the phenominal success of the Boy Scout move- 
ment, generaled by Sir Robert Baden Powell, demonstrates that latent good-fellow- 
ship, gratitude and honour can grow and mature. Long ago, the Prophet Zephaniah 
foretold the coming Gf a perfect language — which, in these latter times, the people 
are longing for in order to overcome misunderstandings and know and enjov mutual 
intercourse in business and pleasure. The walls of Jericho fell very simply, and the 
Jiugual walls which have hitherto divided the nations, need no longer prevent all 
people that on earth do dwell — whatever their creeds, colour or idiosyncrasies — from 
sat sfactorily communicating with each other by means of 

The International Language. 

•Up-to Date Mariners use the International Code of Signals at sea. 
Up-to -Date Musicians use the International Staff Notation for Music

Esperanto, like English, is made up from oilier languages: its roots are taken 
rom the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 1 1 tli Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding the J Oth ill Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Erancisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was heldjthere, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta ilondo Esperanto Kongresoa 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at th Hague., Holland in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1 *J 2 1 ; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finland, in 1922; the 15th at 
Niirnbergin 1923, the 16th at Vienna in 1924, the 17th the following August again at 
Geneva; and the 18th at Edinburgh, in 1926 (when the Holy Bible, in 
Esperanto, was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral). National congresses are held .an- 
nually in all civilised conntries, and international congresses in both hemispheres 

Esperanto— the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
•of la kara lingvo. It is used at the great and happy international Jamborees- 
meetings so harmonious that they are appropriately closed by the singing of "Auld 
Langsyne. ; ' 

Esperanto has been adooted by the League of Nations, League of Religions, and 
numerous business firms, tourist organisations and scientific societies everywhere. 
It is, of course, regularly broadcast by wireless. 

The pronunciatiou of English is demonstrated by adoption of the new Esperanto 
letters, which are known throughout the world. Sorts can be had at ordinary prices 
from typefounders everywhere.

mmiTWMw si@fs 


Enjoyed in Scottish Homes wherever seen. 
The first number, dated November, 1929, was printed before Saint 
Andrew's Day (the Scotsman's Holiday throughout the World, 
the second number was issued as a Christmas and New Year Card 
and the third wi' Januar' win' which blew ban'sel in 'on Robin. 
The subsequent issues will have association wiih other memories. 

The Glasgow '■ Bulletin," of 2nd August, 1929, had the following : 

"A Scottish Nked. — The decline in American tourist traffic in Scotland is, according to a 
tourist agent wjtli whom I have had a'chat,due to our failure to advertise our country's spec- 
ial attractions. A new generation is growing up in U S. A which knows not Scotland, and hu g 
never heard of Roderick Dim, Fitz .lames, Bonnie Prince Chairlie, and Mary Queen of Scots. 
Thea gent suggets the establishment of a well-organised Scottish Tourist Publicity Agency. 
which would broadcast the fame of the Lowlands and Highlands in the U.S.A. and on the 
Continent." The idea is spreading as time advances. 

Trips home are now becoming popular among voluntary " exiles " and their descendants 
which adds to the spread of good fellowship. 

Eight Numbers of this publication have been issued ; these and the four 

to follow will be sent to any address for postal order for 2s 6d.
